C Tuning is the most common tuning used today.

C Tuning, High "G"

C-shape-C_tuningC Tuning - For Soprano, Concert and Tenor ukulele. The same as the higher four strings of a standard tuned guitar with a capo at the fifth fret with string four "G" one octave higher.

For setting up music notation programs like Finale and Sibelius this tuning is:
MIDI: G = G3, C = C4, E = E4, A = A4

C4 is middle C.

C Tuning, Low "G"

For setting up music notation programs like Finale and Sibelius this tuning is:
MIDI: G = G4, C = C4, E = E4, A = A4
C4 is middle C.

Reading can be thought of on many different levels. 1) the ability to slowly and painfully work out the written music. 2) the ability to hear the music by looking at the notation. 3) the ability to notate< your ideas in standard music notation. 4) the ability to read music as you read a book or an article. 5) the ability to communicate with other musicians in the written language of music. 6) the ability to learn songs that you have never heard.

This series of lessons picks up after right after the Reading Music on Ukulele - Primer which focused on reading in the open position. This series is a Pro level series of lessons to get you really reading.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee
